Simmered Beef Stir-Fry
Everyone who knows me knows I’m always trying new recipes. My family gets frustrated because I don’t repeat a recipe they love often enough for them. This recipe I will defiantly repeat. I recommended Oxygen magazines new summer grilling special in another post and that is where the recipe came from.
Simmered Beef Stir-Fry by Oxygen
Serves 4 x 1 ¼ cups
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 lb. rib eye steak, sliced into ½ inch strips
¼ cup beef broth
1 Tbsp. minced garlic
1 Tbsp. minced ginger
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
1 cup small broccoli florets
1 cup thinly sliced zucchini
½ cup thinly sliced red onion
1 cup thinly sliced red peppers
½ cup bean sprouts
1. Heat olive oil to medium high in a large skillet. Add meat and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add 2 Tbsp. stir-fry sauce (recipe below). Reduce heat to medium low and cook until meat is cooked through about 10 minutes. Remove meat from skillet and set aside.
2. In the same skillet add broth. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer. Add garlic and vegetables and cook until tender-crisp. Add meat and remaining stir-fry sauce and heat through.
3. Serve over brown rice and garnish with bean sprouts.
¼ cup hoisin sauce
2 tsp. honey
¼ cup low-sodium soy sauce or tamari
2 tsp. good-quality curry powder ( I used red curry powder it has more kick)
1 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1. Whisk together well in a small bowl
I have to say my kids loved this recipe. It had a little extra kick to it since I substituted the curry powder for red curry powder. I figure I was adding fuel to the metabolism furnace. I really enjoy my Oxygen magazine and I love some of the recipes they offer. Now don’t get me wrong I’ve tried a few that I absolutely would never do again but its trial and error. Eating clean doesn’t have to be difficult and once you have learned the foundation of the clean principles putting your own meals together will come naturally. Like this morning I made a breakfast pizza which I posted.
If you try this recipe or any of my other recipes I would love to hear your feedback. I hope you enjoy this wonderful treat provided by Oxygen.
